As usual Mr Google provides the answer, it is Indian, known as lizard fish. Was banned by EU but you can get in uk from a Birmingham supplier, via approved EU exporter! Interestingly available in Canada due to large Indian population.

It is a dried fish, but not like others described above, trust me if you had tried it you would remember, the smell is horrendous!

Ackee and Salt fish is a Jamaican dish, my daughters Nan used to make it all the time, stinks to high heaven but cooked the right way is delicious :)

Yeh bit daunting, also in Portuguese cooking but I seem to remember they also caught and salted carp, so I suppose different peoples often salt down some sort of fish even we did in UK, awful strong tasting though, luckily we can now freeze or for a treat smoke.

Seen a few times on tv, I think it's an acquired taste! Would rather have fresh herring in oatmeal though!

Had great BBQ the other day: prawns, sea bass, and bream...salad, bread, bottle of rose...sorted

I have tried to eat but did spit it out...really the smell says no way in ***....the consistency is like jelly...think its forbidden to even open up a can if you live in an apartment. I cant eat it...my father liked it-dont get how anyone can eat it...
